Amateur ham operators are asked to listen for the signal to verify NanoSail-D is operating. This information should be sent to the NanoSail-D dashboard at: http://nanosaild.engr.scu.edu/dashboard.htm .
The NanoSail-D beacon signal can be found at 437.270 MHz.
Thanks to all the ham radio operators for their help in following NanoSail-D. A beacon signal has been received and NanoSail-D appears to be operating nominally and is scheduled to unfurl at 10 p.m. EST. The NASA team will confirm the sail has deployed with a ground based image as soon as it is available.

PA3GUO published a very interesting video showing how to receive telemetry data from the satellite using SDR
…a suggestion for FunCube Dongle owners! ;)
